I am your Fairy-God-Mother
I’m here to help you..

What is it, child?
Why do you look so sad?

Oh, dear Fairy-God-Mother,
I have lost my love.
The man that passed me by is my fiancé
We have been engaged since we were kids
But now he doesn’t even realize my existence;
Nor I have the dare to touch and reach for him

Why, my child?

An evil spirit had put spell on me
I don’t know what to do
Don’t panic, little one.
Every problem has its solution.
I believe we can break the spell.
All you have to do is to dig inside your self and your heart.
And you’ll find the answers.

Have to be sought by yourself.
Believe in yourself, and everything will be all right.
And do remember: you are Not alone


Don’t leave me
